Good Faith in the Scots Law of Contract: An Undisclosed Principle?

Research output: Working paper


Good faith is not an overtly recognised or apparently very active concept in general contract law in Scotland. This essay argues however that good faith does play a substantial role in contract law, but in a submerged or subterranean way, through particular rules rather than broad general statements. A particularly good example is provided by the authorities on pre-contractual liability, which are discussed in depth and compared with other systems, including the Principles of European Contract Law (PECL).
